Last week I was at a screening of the movie ‘artifishal’. This film is a Patagonia production, and it's great to see such company involved in sustainability... I will try not to give you too many spoilers and truly recommend that you go and watch it because it portrays some issues that are rarely considered. The film made me really think about all of the things that we do in name of sustainability.. are they really sustainable ?
Paper is one of those controversial materials which are often considered as ‘just paper’ or ‘oh but is paper is okay’ when it comes to disposing or considering single use items ..
Of course , paper is probably better than plastic BUT paper is not that environmentally friendly either. Have you ever noticed those footings on emails saying ‘consider the environment/ don’t print this email’?
Today’s theme might seem a bit off-topic with the rest of the blog
What has anarchism got to do with sustainability, you might ask?
well.. wait and you may see that it has everything to do with it!
‘The oceans are not going to keep up with climate change’ - these were the sort of headlines you might have encountered last week (on September 25th to be exact) on many newspapers. From the guardian, the bbc, the time, the New York Times ...
Did they all just suddenly wake up ?
Well, if you are wondering why now, it was not a random choice but rather it came down to the coming out of the IPCC report for the ocean and cryosphere (don’t worry, I also had to search for this last term .. which actually refers to the ice cover , as you might have guessed from the ‘ cryo’ part).
The ocean space in Venice also dedicated to it a whole day of conference on a Saturday with a great mix of scientists and artists (amongst them ALEXANDER TARAKHOVSKY and SKYE MORÉT)
But.. what are the main points coming out of this report ?
